[nycphp-talk] array in object

I would guess that $key['descr'] is happening before $cur->$key.

Hi Folks - 


This should be simple, but I haven't been able to debug it on my own, so I'm
asking for help.


I'm walking through a user's webform submission that I've put into an object
and comparing each of that object's properties with the current properties
($cur) stored on mySQL database.

The example below is input for a phone number (phone1).


This example stores the 10-digit phone number into variable $c:



If I use $key to capture the property to be checked ('phone1'), the
following stores null:



Any help on understanding why $cur->$key['descr'] is not synonymous with
$cur->phone1['descr'] when $key='phone1' would be a help!


Best Regards -
